I hope we have all been doing our pelvic floor exercises, friends, because -well, actually because it is a very important issue in women’s health- but that was not where I was going. Ahem. I hope we have all been doing our pelvic floor exercises because there are so many exciting gems in the shop right now that we might all pee our pants a little bit!
So, ok, there is so much that could be done with this little flared coverall/apron dress, I just can’t even! The fact that it has a bib AND a flared vintage-cut skirt is so cool and fashion-y. I would stop you in the street to give you a compliment if I saw you rocking this look!
The simple back!
So, remember when we saw Cydwoqs in the backroom a few weeks ago and I passed out momentarily? They are finally out! Cydwoqs are very special, and it’s a real treat to have them in the shop. They are all hand-made in California, with a very limited manufacturing and environmental footprint. Each pair is made of custom, vegetable dyed leather that molds to your feet, and gives each pair that cool, edgy rough look.
Check out how that heart detail looks irregular and organic. I love unique pieces like this that have a true human touch to them!
Weeeeeeeeeee! A super vintage-y Kate Spade cardigan!
The pearl and crystal cowl, and the white on black buttons totally make this top!
Secretly, friends, this adorable Petunia Pickle Bottom frame purse is….a diaper bag! I know! Basically, in this case it means we are looking at a roomy, solidly-constructed, waterproof, indestructible purse…that happens to have a diaper pad in it. And this one is brand new, friends. You can take the change pad out of it, of course, if you are not in that phase of your life, and you’ll have lots of room for your mom-wallet and knitting project!
After satchels, I’m a sucker for frame bags! This print is total vintage-wallpaper, which I love, and that pop of colour totally gives me Orla Kiely vibes (which I also love!).
Did you see this ModCloth blazer on our Instagram? Oh, just an ordinary blazer…..
….with stegosauruses on it!!!
Just like this is an ordinary dress…..
….with Scottish Terriers on it!!
Sadly, it’s very possible that no amount of pelvic floor exercises will help us when we see this:
I just. I mean. It’s. Gah. You know?
And over in the mens’ section, oh, just a gorgeous wool, Lacoste pea-coat. No big deal.
And one more from the men’s section because I couldn’t resist! Made in….where? With wool and alpaca, my favourite fibre!
(I’m from Belgium, friends, in case you don’t know what I’m talking about. Those of you who did know that get 10% off! Haha)
But, hey, also, this happens to be a lovely sweater!
This purse also has that vintage-wallpaper feel. And this one had surprises!
Look what I found inside! Friends, we’ve never talked about the fact that I collect vintage handkerchiefs! And I love bees! This was such a special little treasure!
Can you see her title on the card? QUEEN BEE! I’m getting on the horn right now with our graphic designer Denise (who also helped make the shop the beautiful space it is) to get a business card made up!
Shall we visit the backroom again? Metallica and Iron Maiden tees!
I’ll be in the shop on Saturday, friends. You know I love it when you come in to chat!
